Operation Write Home Memorial DayWeekend Blog Hop

I apologize if you either followed my blog and it kicked you out (a couple people are missing!) or if the follow box just isn't there. Grrrr to Blogger :(  Okay, now I'm also missing comments!
Hello and welcome.  It's the Operation Write Home Memorial Day Weekend Blog Hop!
A quick note, Blogger had been acting wonky (at least for me) and my followers keep disappearing, so if you want to be my bloggy friend you might have to come back to hit that follow button.
For the blog hop we were supposed to make a missing you card and to snazz it up it was optional to make it red, white and blue.  Below are some shots of my card, it's pretty simple, I'm not the snazziest card maker.  I used my own image (digital stamp) and colored it with Prismacolor colored pencils (next week I'll have the digi stamp in my shop).  I made the text using a font from Adobe Illustrator and printed it on brown kraft cardstock.

 
I'm also having a giveaway, some blog candy as the cool kids call it.  Read the guidelines in the post before this one.

First: Choice of five digital stamps from my STORE!

Second
This collection of nifty stuff;  10 kraft permanent adhesive sticker sheets, pad of really cute tags, package of epoxy circles, package of chipboard, package of brown kraft mini gift tags.

Third: This sketckbook.  I have one of these myself and this is the paper I used for the image on my card.
Have fun on the rest of the hop.  I hope I make some new lovely bloggy friends.  Scroll down and read the two posts before this one.  That's where more details are, oh and I have a couple freebies there too.  The next stop on the hop is Yvette.  Her blog full of wonderful creations is Cre8tiveGirls.

  55. Missy, I'm so sorry that Blogger wasn't cooperating for you either! I just found out that I need to select the Name/URL option in order to get my comments to show.

    I love seeing your images colored with colored pencils like Ileanna and I both use. You definately are more talented making cards than you give yourself credit for! I love these images...perfect for OWH cards! I can see why you had fun shopping for the blog candy! I'm the same way! I hope you enjoyed your first blog hop! It is wonderful to have you onboard!
